PostSubject: The Late Mr. W. H. Granger   Sun Aug 11, 2013 12:58 pm

Whilst looking into the Stafford House doctors who served in the Anglo-Zulu War I came across an article which caught my eye.  The reported death of an Isandlwana survivor, which I thought I'd share with the forum, all spellings and terms from 1888:

Illustrated London News, 9th June 1888
The Late Mr. W. H. Granger.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Mr. Walter Homer Granger, Inspector of Military Police in Burmah, was the youngest son of Mr. Charles Granger, solicitor, of Leeds, and grandson of Thomas Homer Granger, also a solicitor of that town.  He was engaged in the Kaffir and Zulu Wars, and was one of the few survivors of the disastrous battle of Isandhlwana, in 1879.  He carried the despatches to Lord Chelmsford after the battle, delivering them between Rorke’s Drift and Helpmakaar.  At the termination of the Zulu War Mr. Granger went to India for seven years, and for two years was in active service in Burmah. In November, last year, he received his well-earned promotion, and was appointed as Inspector of the new Military Police commanding the steam-launch Diamond on the Irrawaddy river.  Having only occupied this post for six months, he died at the early age of thirty-one having fallen a victim to cholera on April 9 last, by which the British Government of Burmah loses a promising and useful public servant.
